The TLC Mathematics Lab is a crucial resource that can help you succeed in your math course. Take advantage of our walk-in service and succeed in your math course!
The Math Lab provides a wide variety of resources for students enrolled in math (MAT) courses at the college. This quiet, tutor-assisted room supports self-study and one-on-one help. In addition, the Math Lab provides downloadable materials and links to external resources via the TLC website.
Math Lab tutors can help students:
- Use examples and hints to guide a student through difficult problems.
- Re-explain concepts from a class lesson.
- Guide a student catching up on a missed class, utilizing Math Lab handouts and text books.
- Help explain and demonstrate a tough section in the math book.
The Math Lab tutors cannot:
- Simply provide answers to problems, or do your homework for you.
- Teach material from a missed class.
- Check every homework problem and take-home quiz/test.
- Help a single student for extended periods of time - tutors must be available for everyone.

- Discover Your Course to browse specific items for your class.
